The Town Hall has been at the heart of Chesham's community life since it first opened in 1998. As well as the home of the Council offices it is also a popular venue for hire, with two fully equipped function rooms available for both private and social use.
Room hire can either be on a long or short-term basis and we currently have a range of local community groups using our facility. Amongst them, Slimming World, MS Society, NCT, and the Repair Cafe. We are always keen to accommodate local groups, charities, businesses and individuals and welcome your visits. Hundreds of people come through our doors every week, day and night, to attend meetings, classes, talks, events and parties in our rooms for hire.
Here is a testimonial from one of our regular hirers;
‘We absolutely love holding our weekly art classes at the Chesham Town Hall. The room is always prepared, it’s light and airy with a fab little kitchen too. Perfect location in central Chesham with great parking’. Jay Nolan-Latchford Art
